Washington Capitals Helping James Wood High Get Rink

17 May 2018 News


The Washington Capitals are helping Frederick County’s own James Wood Middle School raise money to build a street hockey rink.

So far, the Capitals have obtained $165,000 from the National Hockey League’s Industry Growth Fund for the project, a 100 by 200 foot inline skating rink that would be behind the school on the site of its former tennis court. The project was originally proposed to the Frederick County Public Schools Buildings Committee by the Top of Virginia Hockey Alliance, a 501(c)(3) organization that promotes advanced hockey in the Winchester-Frederick area. It would cost a total of $222,500, leaving an additional $57,500 to be raised. The alliance plans to secure these additional funds themselves to avoid any installation or maintenance costs to taxpayers. The Capitals are hoping to sign an agreement with the School Board by July 17th.
